The aim of NSS is mainly centered on the personality development of the students through community service and programs. The overall concept of NSS as envisaged earlier is to give an extension dimension to the higher education system and orient the youth to community service while they are studying in educational institution. The NSS proves to groom the student youth into an active citizen, which brings about satisfaction to an individual and promotes peace in the community.
Community service rendered by NSS volunteers has covered several aspects like adoption of villages for intensive development work, carrying out medico-social service setting up of medical centers, programs of mass immunization, sanitation drives, adult education programs for the weaker sections of the community, blood donation helping patients in hospitals, helping inmate of orphanages and physically handicapped etc.
The motto of NSS "not me but you" is a sense of expression on face it appears to be very simple and short, but behind it lays a lot of meaning. It is very deep and suggestive and is quiet in keeping with the spirit of NSS. The expression stands for two things forgetting and surrendering “The Self” and rendering selfless service for “others”. The students undertake various programs in the adopted villages, schools campuses and urban slums during weekends or after college hours. These activities are listed below:
- Orientation of NSS volunteers
- Campus work
- Natural calamities and national emergencies
- National days and celebrations
